Really?! You have a car this expensive and you can't afford to have it transported? Do the right thing and don't muck around under the hood, especially with electrics- if you mess somethin' up you are looking at more than just a battery-

connect the positive lead on the battery post located in the engine compartment (under a plastic cap) and the other to a ground on the engine.

Take a new battery to the car

Use a a code saver or you will be sorry. Get a good one, not a 9v battery in the cigarette lighter.
